Rothko-esque Painting

I started out by painting a mix of purples together to form a colored background. Then I chose 3 colors and put them in separate areas. Finally I blended all three colors together on top of the purple.

Amy Polar Bear

To create Amy Polar Bear I took a picture of Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes and a picture of a polar bear. I cut out the polar bear's face and blended it on Amy's. Then I added a frame and an icy background to finish my project.

Cartoon Scene

I first took a uncolored background from the humor folder and filled it in with different colors, patterns, designs to create the setting for the characters. Then I colored and placed the 3 characters into my background.

Where's Nikki?

The main part of this assignment was the collage and to create that I found a ton of images of things I liked online. Then I made a waldo version of myself using a cutout of my face. I hid that in the collage to make a personalized where's waldo.

Albrecht Durer

To start off, I cut out an image of four koalas and edited that to give in a sketched look. Then I put it on top of a also sketched like background.

Edward Gorey

To create my Edward Gorey inspired project, I cut out different shapes and objects from a black background. I placed them on a pattern background and added a slogan at the top that rhymed, to match the shapes I made.

Bird Coloring Page

 To start this project I took a blank coloring book picture of a bird and some different colored feathers. Then I took my feathers and duplicated them to the amount I wanted. By placing them where they would be on a bird it made it a more realistic version of a colored bird.


Starting off I downloaded a blank kaleidoscope pattern from the internet and brought it in to Photoshop. Then I used different fills, patterns, gradients, and opacity to color in my kaleidoscope.
